  • Go Behind The Scenes With 'The Weather Guys'

    “Weather Guys” Steve Ackerman and Jon Martin come on “The Larry Meiller Show” the last Monday of every month. The University of Wisconsin-Madison scientists are some of the most popular regular guests, where they answer listeners’ questions, explain recent weather phenomena and share exciting research happening at the University of Wisconsin and beyond.

    In June 2014, they took part in the weekly “Wednesday Night @ the Lab” series sponsored by the Wisconsin Alumni Association. Thanks to Wisconsin Public Television, their presentation was recorded and is available online.

    In the presentation, Martin and Ackerman explain what it is like behind the scenes when they are guests on the show, and then take questions from the lecture audience to simulate the radio program experience.
